One for the holidays

It’s that time of year again
To shop and cook seems such a pain
Yet this is simply not what it’s all about

There are also laughs and cheers
Bottled ales and sweet, cold beers
Little ones who love to scream and shout

A nice little getaway
Children gathered round to play
Night time skating on a frozen lake

Prayers echo in the night
And families reunite
Tables spread with food and Christmas cake

A quiet time to reminisce
To share a song or just a kiss
On a silent night before the morn

When the world seems to run around
And the snow touches solid ground
A fire keeps the home safe and warm

A time to remember everyone who cares
And even those in deep despair
The time for giving is upon us all

There’s happiness in the air
As humanity fills the chairs
Happy holidays to one and all!
